Menu Monday

This week I made my menu while I was traveling. I sent Art a text asking him what he would like for dinner. He responded with IDK. Ugh come on dear I need some help! Then he suggested that we have 2-3 nights of no meat. I had already put somethings together for our menu prior to him saying no meat. I want to use stuff in the freezer.

I would also like to start grocery shopping every 2 weeks instead of every week. I spent an hour and a half to two hours a week preparing menus, grocery lists, and shopping. That is a lot of time when you only have 2 days off week.

Monday - Meatless chili with a baked red potato

Tuesday - Breakfast eggs, sausage and waffles

Wednesday - Turkey burgers and sweet potato fries

Thursday - Food Trucks

Friday - Chicken tacos

I am going to make my chili in the crockpot. I made beans in the crockpot a couple weeks ago and they turned out amazing. I thought why not make chili in the crockpot. I bought some black beans, kidney beans and tomato sauce. I have frozen tomatoes from our garden I am going to throw in there also. I will let you know how it turns out.
